カナダの大手新聞The Globe and Mailのサイトで、彼のやりかたをとりあげた記事The case for being a copycat investorがありましたので、ご紹介します。(日本語は拙訳)

よいアイデアを盗むのは後ろめたい? アメリカのファンド・マネージャー、モーニッシュ・バブライはそうは考えない。資産を築くにはすばらしいやりかたなので、著名な投資家をもっとまねしたほうがよいと説く。そういう彼の本からアイデアを借りて、あなたも自分のポートフォリオを見直したくなるかもしれない。


Is purloining good ideas distasteful? U.S. fund manager Mohnish Pabrai doesn’t think so. He says it’s a great way to make money and urges people to copy notable investors more often. You might want to take a page out of his book and improve your portfolio.

Mr. Pabrai recently talked about the joys of being a copycat with students at the Ben Graham Centre for Value Investing at the Richard Ivey School of Business in London, Ont. He pointed to the case of McDonald’s, which is well known for spending a great deal of time and effort on selecting locations for new restaurants. The effort is worth it because a good spot can make the difference between success and failure. But rival Burger King has a less expensive approach. It simply puts its restaurants across the street from existing McDonald’s locations, thus getting the benefit of its rival’s research for free.




But there’s another hitch. Managers who trade frequently may have swapped into different stocks soon after they filed their list of holdings. Someone who jumps into stocks on the basis of those regulatory filings could be purchasing stocks the manager has already discarded.

For that reason, copycats should focus on investors who hold stocks for long periods. By and large, that means copying value investors ? money managers who buy out-of-favour securities and hold onto them for several years.
